Russ Hadley

Thanks for visiting my website. I have enjoyed a very successful career working on national, regional and local TV commercials, as well as a variety of film and documentary projects. I love to work with people. Real people, famous people and of course trained professional actors. 

As a Director, director of Photography and still photographer, I will always work on beautiful images and great storytelling. I have always offered creative editorial as part of my skillset and a lot of our clients utilize us for the cut. I currently edit on Adobe Premiere, which provides a seamless transition to most Post Houses for final edit, graphics and color correction if necessary.

The Hadley Group

My wife Producer Chris Hadley and I are partners in The Hadley Group, as well as being partners in life. Our previous company, Third Eye Productions Inc., was a very successful production company for over 27 years, working on commercial projects all over the United States. In 2013, we decided to restructure all of our business interests into The Hadley Group, LLC. The main emphasis of our business remains commercial, documentary and video production as well as still photography.

The Hadley Group also owns and manages a renovated building in the Crossroads Arts District of Kansas City.
