Upon leaving the service in 1910, he opened a photographic studio in Tampa. In 1920 he moved the studio to Miami, where he did commercial photography for Miami Beach developer Carl Fisher and later for Coral Gables developer George Merrick. Fishbaugh continued photographing the Miami area until shortly before his death in the early 1950s.
