You don't take a photograph, you make it.


A good photograph is knowing where to stand.

The owners of Fox-Mar are life-long residents of Dade County and attended our local public school system. Ira Fox and Mark Maynard were editors on their high school yearbook staffs at Coral Gables and Hialeah High, respectively. Fox-Mar was started when Ira was 21 years old and Mark was 19. Both held local jobs at a large national school portrait studio, Tooley-Myron Photographers. In the beginning, all the work at Fox-Mar (photography, lab work, deliveries, assignments, sales, etc) was performed by the two of them. From day one the business plan was based on a strong commitment to quality.

Fox-Mar first opened our doors in March of 1974 as a full-time portrait studio. Our first location was at 375 East 49 Street in Hialeah, Florida and only 600 square feet! After a few moves and expansions we relocated to what is now referred to as the Miami Lakes Studio. This facility is over 7,500 square feet and was designed specifically for our Senior portrait and prom business. 

In about 1979, the Kendall studio was opened to service schools south of Flagler Street. The suburban expansion in the south and the quality of our photography and service allowed us to expand and remodel the south location several times. Fox-Mar Photography is one of the most productive and well-known studios in the Southeast U.S. directly due to our quality service, and "the customer comes first" attitude.


In 2010 we opened our Broward studio in order to better serve our Broward county customers. 

Fox-Mar has made a commitment to South Florida Schools by providing thousands of dollars in scholarships to selected journalism students. We also support many athletic programs and school activities throughout the year. Fox-Mar is a member of the Dade Partner's program and has received many awards of appreciation from our school clients. Fox-Mar provides employment to nearly seventy families who live, work, and pay taxes in Miami-Dade and Broward County. Dollar for dollar, we doubt any photography company returns as much to the community as Fox-Mar.
