Group Five Photosports is a privately held commercial photo and video production and distribution company based in the Denver suburb of Littleton, Colorado. We specialize in producing websites, DVD & BluRay video, and other products featuring female glamour, swimwear and lingerie models from all across the USA.
History & Ownership
The company was first established as a limited partnership (LTD) in November of 1983 to produce and market sports photography. It was literally a Group of Five photographers shooting Photos of Sports. The company started by doing retail photography at youth and high school sporting events, along with local auto and motorcycle race tracks.
Within the first few years of business the company began working more and more with female models, usually in swimwear next to fancy cars or motorcycles for magazines, calendars and posters, and by 1989 products featuring attractive female models became the company's sole focus as it is today.
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.

We have begun marketing products and new ventures using the entity names of Group Five Media, LLC, Group Five Studios, LLC and Group Five Media Networks, LLC. This company name change is long overdue as we diversify our business. Our current production is more than 50% video related, as opposed to still photos, and no longer involves sports of any type. Clearly the term "Photosports" no longer applies.
We expect the transition to be complete at the end of 2018.
Our current work includes the popular glamour model website TrueBabes, remodeling of our Colorado studio to expand our rental program for professionals needing large production space, and partnering with Sharp Productions of Las Vegas to produce a TV show pilot episode featuring bikini models in a reality TV setting.
