USPS Protect Pollinators Stamps Feature A George Lepp Photo
We’re thrilled to congratulate Outdoor Photographer Field Editor and “Tech Tips” columnist George Lepp on the selection of one of his images to be featured on a new USPS Forever stamp as part of a new series entitled “Protect Pollinators” which is available now.
The “Protect Pollinators” stamp featuring George Lepp’s photograph.
“I have won the mini Post Office lottery,” Lepp announced in a recent newsletter. “They have chosen one of my images for a stamp that was released today. The series is ‘Protect Pollinators’ and one of the 5 images is mine. The real story,” Lepp explained, “is that I placed this image with the agency Photo Researchers in 1994 (23 years ago) and it is a film image. Fortunately it is sharp and properly exposed and scanned by Photo Researchers to make it a digital image in their files. A Post Office representative chose it from the agency files and now I’m on a ‘Forever’ stamp.” Lepp notes that “There’s not much monetary return after the agency takes their cut, but it’s really about the honor. No credit line, but whatever.”
Lepp, who now resides in Bend, Oregon, was interviewed by Central Oregon Daily about the new stamp. You can watch the video here.
