The Who & Why
Group Five Photosports is a photo & video production company from Colorado that is expanding back to Clearwater, Florida in late fall 2021. We said "back to Clearwater" because we maintained a studio here from 2004-2010 and know the area very well. That studio worked with
We started in 1983 as a photo studio but over the past 30+ years have expanded into video production, subscription websites, producing live streaming events, and under the Group Five Media and TrueModels names we do website hosting and other backend tech services for others. If super curious you can read more about us on Zoom Business here and in more detail on our site here.
You may ask why we are looking for all these people but the answer is simple. We're getting old. We've been around the pretty girl picture business over 30 years. It's time for us older guys to slow down, smoke some cigars and drink some rum, while lending a little bit of knowledge and experience to the younger crowd. We want to take a little bit more of a behind the scenes approach to the business these days and let the younger people do all the out front production work.
Plus, younger people understand the current trends and have a totally different style compared to us. This is a good time to be an ambitious young photographer with a friend that loves doing make-up and another friend that looks awesome in a bikini! There is a lot of fun to be had and money to be made these days!
We are a business and want to make a profit from all our projects. We have ideas, we have experience, we have gear, and we have money to buy more gear and cute outfits, but in the Clearwater area we do not yet have local helpers, assistants or paid interns to create a fun production crew.
There is a million opportunities out there. Time to team up so we can go grab them for ourselves.
EXAMPLE 1: With our TrueModels hosting service we manage fan club subscribers for a 16 year old Brazilian bikini model / InstaModel (150,000 followers) and her photographer boyfriend. They profit thousands of dollars a month. Our company gets part of that money for doing the technical stuff and customer service stuff.
Of course that can be done right here in the Clearwater area. We want that fan club hosting service to grow so its a natural thing to help a few girls and guys in this area get started. Work with us a little bit to learn and BOOM, just like that you'll be making or staring in awesome photos and videos and can get your own small content production business going.
EXAMPLE 2: A lady that worked in our office back in 2005-2008 now has a teenage daughter. The girl wants to be a pastry chef and even start a YouTube channel showing how she creates her pastries, treats, candies and other foods. Mom and daughter have no idea how to film, how to record the sound, how to edit, and of course they don't have lights and cameras.
It makes perfect sense for us to help them find a high school age girl or guy that is interested in video production to work with. If the teen pastry chef girl gets popular and starts selling pastries and candies online she'll do it with our hosting service (so we profit), and if the teen videographer gets good in the future they'll expand into other projects and work with us or rent our studio (so we profit).
Those are just 2 examples but there are hundreds of possibilities out there. It all inter-connects: The girl that helps on hair, and the guy that arranges the lights, for the teen pastry chef cooking videos might just two days later be working with a local bikini babe, and yet another 2 days later be helping with a couple of college girls for our new video podcast. Its all about learning, experiences, and producing.
All positions are paid jobs. Nobody here is expected to work for free!
The possibilities are endless! If you are interested in the content production business from either side of the camera and think it might be fun to work with us a couple of weekends each month over the fall of 2021 and busting into 2022 please reach out using the form below.
