I finally had the pleasure of shooting with Hywel and Jocelin for there amazing website restrained elegance and I must say, they lived up to there great reputation. Hywel had really good pre communication the shoot was very well organised, they both were extremely professional yet fun, chatty and made me feel completely at ease as I hadn't done much bondage before but I felt completely relaxed and trusted them entirely.
other than how good the shoot was they are most probably the loveliest and nicest couple I have ever met! :D HIGHLY recommended to all models.
great shoot with Hywel and Joceline a few months ago :-)
They were both very professional and friendly throughout the shoots.
Hywel took some amazing photos, I was very impressed by the results and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him! :-D
I finally got to model for Hywel and Restrained Elegance this week and it was ace! He gave me super clear instructions on what to bring and where to travel, everything was arranged very efficiently. Hywel is superfun and a great photographer, I've seen some of the previews and they look great. He also gives good direction too as well as letting me ad lib with my own ideas. All in all a fabulous day with plenty of tea and yummy food to hand. I'd definitely recommend him and work with him again!
I worked for Restrained Elegance on my recent tour down south and have to say it has to be one of the best sites I've work for by a long shot!
I also had the pleasure of working with both Hywel and Joceline.
Hywel is SO professional and has amazing skills as a photographer, knowing exactly what he wants. He is also very kind and accommodating and gave me lunch whilst I was there.
Joceline was a perfect assistant/rigger. I had such a laugh with her and some of her rope ideas were amazing!
All in all working with them both is incredibly creative and kept interesting throughout. Not once did the day drag and I was shocked when I realised we were finished!
You are respected throughout and they always make sure you aren't in any discomfort.
100% recommended. I can't possibly recommend them enough to be honest!
Would definitely love to work with them again!
Had my second shoot for restrained elegance today, but this time had the pleasure of working with Hywel and Joceline! They are both so lovely and make you feel comfortable as possible. The full day shoot didn't drag at any point as I was being kept on my toes by their creative ideas! They also catered to my vegan diet for lunch and made sure I was watered and happy throughout the shoot. Hywel is a talented photographer with great ideas and Joceline is a wonderful rigger/assistant!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone and would love to work with them again. Thanks for a great shoot!
I worked with Hywel recently for his site Restrained Elegance & I can honestly say it was one of the best shoots Ive ever done. He & Joceline were wonderful hosts and put me up for 2 nights feeding and welcoming me. I felt very safe around them both. Hywel is very easy to get along with, very very professional & knows exactly what hes doing which is amazing to work with as you just have to think about what your doing nothing else! Hywel is extremely talented and I was honesly surprised seeing the images and videos back I couldnt belive how good they were. 100% efficiency for communication, organisation, planning and accomodating me. Thanks Hywel, Cant wait until next time. Tillie xxx

I am the owner, webmaster and main photographer for http://www.restrainedelegance.com and http://www.elegancestudios.com.
We produce elegant bondage and fetish photos and short films. We have been in business since 2001.
If you are interested in working with us, you can find more information at http://www.restrainedelegance.com/modelinfo.php
Key points: - You will need to be comfortable with bondage (pretty much all our commercial work is bondage). We're very happy to teach newcomers the ropes of course! :-) - At the present time we are only booking models who work to figure nude and are happy to wear gags. Otherwise we are too limited in what we can shoot for the shoot to be commercially viable for us
