Randee St. Nicholas is an acclaimed, award-winning Photographer, Director and Clothing Designer based in Los Angeles.

After studying painting into her early twenties, chance opportunities led Randee to pick up a camera… revealing her destiny to become a professional photographer. Her photographs of global super stars have appeared in virtually all major publications including Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Elle, Interview, etc. Her client list is a who’s who of iconic celebrity talent across Music, Film and Television: from Prince, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Barbra Streisand, Bob Dylan, The BeeGee’s, Chris Cornell, VanHalen, Rod Stewart John Legend, Celine Dion, Dolly Parton, Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac, Alison Krauss, Carrie Underwood, Mylie Cyrus and Britney Spears to Tom Cruise, Richard Gere, Matthew McConaughey, Patrick Swayze, Angela Bassett, Kim Basinger, Charlize Theron, Martha Stewart, Howard Stern, Jamie Foxx, Sarah Jessica Parker… just to name a small few.

Randee published her first book, 21 Nights, with Prince in 2008 documenting his historic 21-night residency at London’s O2 Arena. Following the tragic passing of here dear Whitney Houston, Randee worked with the Houston family to curate Whitney: Tribute to an Icon in 2012. Before 21 Nights, Prince had wanted to do a retrospective of the immense body of work Randee and he had created together. After his untimely passing, Randee worked tirelessly to fulfill her promise and released My Name Is Prince in late 2019. The tome, documenting their 25-year creative collaboration was a best seller and even nominated for Best Autobiography by the NAACP Image Awards. Randee is currently working with legendary fine art photography gallerist, David Fahey, of iconic Fahey Klein Gallery to offer her work for the first time to the fine art photography world… and create more complete retrospective book projects from her vast archives.

When Prince convinced Randee to direct his music video Gett Off, her career as a director was born. Her second music video with Whitney Houston for the smash hit, I’m Every Woman, featuring Cissy Houston, TLC, Chaka Khan, Valerie Simpson and Bobby Brown’s Dancers, became a one of the most celebrated videos of all time. In her first year, she directed a mind boggling 42 music videos… Randee has now directed hundreds of music videos for iconic artists across all genres of music and won countless MTV and CMT Music Video Awards. Randee recently won the CMT Music Video of the Year for Carrie Underwood and John Legend’s haunting duet, Hallelujah.

Upon signing with Ridley and Tony Scott’s production company, RSA, Randee expanded her directing career into the realm of commercials, beginning with 19 award winning spots for the iconic Martha Stewart. She has now directed dozens of commercials for a diverse roster of clients ranging from Revlon, Elizabeth Arden, Ford Motors, Ivory, Juicy Couture, Lancôme, Estee Lauder, Urban Decay, L’Oreal, BeautyBlender, TwoFace Cosmetics, etc.

Randee has directed several long form projects including Prince’s 3 Chains O Gold, Alison Krauss and Union Station’s Paper Airplane and Grammy Nominated, The Hang, with jazz icons Don and Dave Grusin. She is currently completing a Documentary Short Film with famed music super producer Glen Ballard and Grammy Award winning artist Shelby Lynne. And somehow, in the middle of doing all of this, Randee developed a couture clothing line that has become a prized treasure to top entertainment industry insiders, artists, celebrities and fashionistas in the know. Randee has cultivated this new creative outlet slowly over the years after Prince insisted, she do interviews in support of their book 21 Nights. Hating to be on camera and not knowing what to wear, Randee made a few pieces. The reaction to those pieces planted the seed to what is now one of her favorite new avenues for creative expression… A true artist in every sense, Randee St Nicholas has always been open to all inspiration and follows wherever it may lead…
