Group Five Photosports is a privately held commercial photo / video production & distribution company based in the Denver suburb of Littleton, Colorado. We specialize in producing content websites and video products featuring female glamour, swimwear and lingerie models from all across the USA. If you have additional question please visit the Contact Us page.
The company was first established as a limited partnership (LTD) in November of 1983 to produce and market sports photography. It was a Group of Five photographers shooting Photos of Sports. The company began with retail photography at high school sporting events and local race tracks.
Within the first few years the company began working with female models, usually in swimwear next to custom cars or motorcycles for magazines, calendars and posters. By 1989 two of the original five partners had left for other pursuits and products featuring female models became the company's sole focus.
In 2002 original partner James S. Grady, along with Colorado attorney Kent Krausman, acquired all outstanding shares from the remaining partners and converted the business to a Nevada Limited Liability Company (LLC). Kent Krausman passed away in 2003 and the Nevada company was converted to a Colorado Limited Liability Company in 2011.
James S. Grady of Avon, Colorado is the Managing General Partner of Group Five Photosports, LLC and all related entities.

The Covid-19 crisis beginning in 2020, related lockdowns and regulations in Colorado, along with nearby social violence, caused several workplace changes. All production work previously planned for Spring and Summer 2020 in the Metro-Denver area, that could be rescheduled, was transferred to the ST. Petersburg / Clearwater, Florida area. Currently all management duties and near future production events are taking place in Florida.
While we continue to consider ourselves a Colorado company the Littleton office is limited to a single employee working 24-30 hours weekly and the Colorado studio is closed. Much of the studio equipment has been transferred to Florida. There are no current plans to reopen full-time in Colorado.

We consistently have both online & offline projects that are active, under development or we have invested in. A sampling of those projects is displayed below.
TrueModels.com is a profile & content hosting platform providing business tools for non-nude model and cosplay personalities (creators) to run a subscription fan club or market content packages. Much like YouTube and Instagram, the site helps non-nude creators, including ourselves, earn income by providing a simple system to manage photo & video content and a secure system for fans to review, enjoy and financially support high quality content.
TrueModels.net, created during the 2020 Covid lockdowns, is a fan club website hosting service for popular Instagram models. The non-nude models/creators, or their friends & helpers, design and update the original site, while our crew handles customer service, security, and behind the scenes tech issues.
TrueDMCA.com provides private content protection, Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), and lawsuit evidence collection services to subscription websites, independent producers, photographers and videographers that are located in the United States of America.
TrueSMTP.com provides transactional and promotional Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) email delivery services to our websites, partner websites in the same market segment, and those that wish to advertise to a proven customer base via our monthly newsletters.
TrueBabes.com, opening in 2004, was our second subscription website. It featured 180 college age models (18-24) in glamour style nude photos and videos. The site displayed our own photography and also published content from top glamour photographers across the USA. With hundreds of websites in this very competitive market the site never became wildly popular and stopped publishing new content in 2015. It remains online as a non-updating archive.
TrueTeenBabes.com was created by a high school girl that worked weekends in our photo lab. It was meant to be our own version of the Swimsuit Issue, but feature only models her age, not popular New York fashion models. It opened in July 2001 and over a great 12 year run featured 200 teenage models from across the USA. We selected to close the site in 2013. There is a more detailed history here for curious persons, and it remains online as an archive for model fans that missed the original publication.
TrueModels.tv is planned as a streaming system similar to Twitch.TV, but rather than focus within the online gaming industry, would center around models, model photography, model related video creation and live photoshoot events.
We expect serious development of this concept to take place in 2023.
TruePodcasts.com is designed to be a podcast series about models, where they interview each other about their modeling, personal lives, men, sex lives, social pressures and more.
We expect serious development of this concept to take place in 2023.
GroupFiveStudios.com. We managed a second production facility in Clearwater, Florida from 2004-2010. Fresh content attitudes nationwide, our own new projects, Covid 19 and other factors have inspired us to reopen a facility there.
When, or if, it will be available as a rental production facility has not yet been determined.
TrueBikini.com was to be a reality style video project. The theme featured high school & college age females, or their parents, recruiting unsuspecting friends and daughters whom we quickly transform into daring bikini models, even if they happen to be the most shy girl in town. Basic reality TV style transformation theme.
The 2020 Covid-19 Virus emergency placed this project on hold after taping minimal footage. In January 2022 the project was officially canceled with no other plans in place for that domain name or branding.
GroupFiveStudios.com. Colorado's strict Covid shutdowns in 2020 and related rules, along with nearby social violence, made it impractical to keep this building open as a rental production facility.
While most of the policies and rules have now been relaxed those changes came too late. There are no current plans to reopen this studio for ourselves or as a rental facility.
