Joel Yocca

Owner & CEO
The first thing you should know about me is that I understand the need to stand out, because as a business owner and artist, I share that need, too. Like you, I know how difficult it can be to distinguish yourself amidst a highly competitive marketplace.

I help professionals overcome this challenge by creating digital content that is unique in nature, superior in quality, and true to vision. I approach each client’s vision and goals as if they were my own. Most of my clients would say they consider me to be an invaluable part of their marketing team.

The next thing you should know about me is my passion for storytelling. My background in film laid the foundation for understanding that there is always a story behind the lens, and that each story is unique. Whether I am working in my role as a photographer, videographer, or business owner, my goal is to capture the attention of your target audience and leave them wanting more.

Although creating authentic, high-quality content is important, being able to replicate that content consistently and efficiently is just as vital. To do this, you need a team. I have surrounded myself with like-minded professionals who share in my vision and produce results that Absolute Altitude® is known for and that our clients expect.

For the past 8 years, it has been my privilege to work alongside hundreds of professionals in the Washington D.C., Virginia, Maryland, and West Virginia areas. Consequently, helping to tell each of their stories has contributed to the success of my own. I would be honored to be a part of your next project as a creative partner who is invested in your success.

Content Producer

Your schedule is crammed with appointments. Your phone is constantly going off. You shouldn’t have to follow the photographer around worrying if they have captured all of the rooms and achieved the best angles for your client. You’ve hired a professional for professional results and I look forward to providing you with just that.

Each home has its own set of unique challenges and features to highlight. I look forward to the challenge of combining our time-tested techniques and my creative instincts that I’ve honed over the years to help your next listing stand out from the sea of meh.

My goal is to serve our clients by providing them with consistent, high-quality media that they can count on, every time. The pressures of the real estate market are stressful. While that is not something I can change, I take pride in knowing that the digital media provided will help alleviate some of that stress.

I love hearing about how our images and videos help contribute to gaining new clients in an oversaturated market. I look forward to earning your trust as we continue to grow together.

Client Care Coordinator (C3)
When you call Absolute Altitude®, you get a real person on the phone, and that’s me! I know our clients are juggling many people and details. My job is to absorb a little bit of that stress so that you have one less thing to worry about. From scheduling your appointment to delivering your media, and all the details in between. I’m here to make sure you have everything you need for your next listing, and that it’s up to the high standards we’re known for.

If you have a great experience with us from start to finish, your team and clients do as well. That’s my goal, and it’s my pleasure to help you with whatever I can.

Five stars are not enough for this review! Truly the best & most creative team to work with for real estate photography. Their photos look great, and I love the iGuide. But the best value is in the quality of their drone work, videos, and reels. A very innovative company that offers more than the competition. Highly recommend!

Joel is the best photographer I have ever worked with. He has the eye and the care to get the shoot done right. While most will not remove even a remote or other object from the pic, Joel went out of his way to position, clear and make each picture perfect! Highly recommend Joel!
