Sam Morris

Photographer

Sam Morris is an Iowa native who made his way to Las Vegas 11 years ago after beginning his career as a freelance photographer in San Francisco. It was in San Francisco that he met his fabulous wife and started a family that grew to include three delightful girls. While he doesn't prefer to shoot one subject over another (he's still surprised people pay him to take photos), he tries to find the quirky, humorous, subtle or graphic in what he covers.

Antarctica, sprawling across the planet's southernmost reaches, has no arable land, no permanent residents. A team of researchers led by Desert Research Institute scientist Kendrick Taylor is engaged in a multi-million dollar project to extract and analyze an 11,000-foot column of ice from Antarctica, an undertaking that will reveal new information about how the planet's climate evolved over the last 100,000 years.
