About Us

Group Five Photosports is a privately held commercial photo / video production & distribution company based in the Denver suburb of Littleton, Colorado. We specialize in creating content websites, video products and producing streaming events featuring female glamour, swimwear and lingerie models from all across the USA. If you have additional questions please visit the Contact Us page.

History & Ownership

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.

COVID-19 Updates & Changes

The Covid-19 crisis and related lockdowns in Colorado, along with nearby social violence, made it impossible to keep our production studio open and all such work has been moved to Florida.

While we continue to consider ourselves a Colorado company the Littleton office sees extremely limited usage and the Colorado production studio is permanently closed. There are no current plans to reopen full-time in Colorado.

Current, Development and Closed Projects

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.


Fanzoona.com

Fanzoona.com is a fan supported content platform providing Instagram Models, Cosplayers, TikTokers and other visual creators a fun place to distribute non-nude content in a safe and secure manner while generating income. Some compare it to Instagram but on the Fanzoona platform those posting the creative visuals also make the money.

Update 2024-04-01:  Fanzoona.com is on temporary hiatus as we build a better system. We expect it to return to full operation June 1, 2024 if the creator market has the need.


TrueModels.net

TrueModels Network, 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

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

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.


GroupFiveStudios.com / Florida

GroupFiveStudios.com. Our Florida production facility site just 5 minutes from the St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport. At 4800 SQ FT with a 36' wide x 24' deep cyclorama, 18' grid height, two additional 24' x 36' production areas, and two full dressing rooms with restrooms, it is a nice building for photo, video, podcast and live productions.

The building is available to established professionals as a rental studio. No porn or parties. Interested parties should reach out from the Contact Us page.


TrueBikini.com / In Development

TrueBikini.com was to be a reality style video project. The 2020 Covid-19 Virus emergency placed this project on hold after taping minimal footage. The theme featured friends and 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.

Update 2024-04-01:  We hope to restart this project and are actively looking for contributors. Interested parties should reach out from the Contact Us page.


TruePodcasts.com / In Development

TruePodcasts.com is designed to be a podcast series about models, where they interview each other about their modeling, personal lives, men, social pressures and more.

We expect serious development of this concept to take place in 2024.


TrueBabes.com

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

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.


GroupFiveStudios.com / Colorado Closed

GroupFiveStudios.com. Colorado's strict Covid shutdowns in 2020, along with nearby social violence, made it impractical to keep this building open as a rental production facility.

There are no current plans to reopen for rentals or our own production events.
