Poppe Images

Has the aim to document a maximum of the Marine Life in the Philippines. During the expeditions of Guphil I, Guido & Philippe Poppe started photographing systematically all marine creatures. This resulted in a fast growing library of documented digital pictures which is obviously important for many people such as zoologists, museologists, divers, photographers, and others.

Today, the database contains 70,146 online images. This is the result of 1,850 dives. These images have been selected out of an average of 295,250 underwater shots. It took an average of 4,292 hours underwater which corresponds to 116 full time working weeks below the surface. 3,700 tanks were filled.


Guido and Philippe take the opportunity here to thank the following people who all contributed to the realization of the images and the POPPEIMAGES website, the crew of Guphil I. All the collaborators who treated and documented the images: Sheila Tagaro, Jerlyn Sarino and Julie Tabornal.
