Jared Polin, better known as Fro Knows Photo in the online world, has revealed the details of a ‘super secret project’ he’s been teasing over the past few weeks. In a video posted to his YouTube channel, Polin shares that he’s giving away more than $92,000 in camera gear as part of a campaign he’s created called ‘Fund a Photographer.’

In Polin’s own words:

[Fund a Photographer is] something I’ve had an idea [of doing] for close to ten years where I get a bunch of camera kits that include cameras, lenses, education—everything someone would need to get started as a photographer. The whole idea is to get a bunch of kits to schools, to teachers in need, as well as kids who have a propensity for creativity, but many have never been able to own a DSLR.’

To kick off the project, Polin is giving away 50 cameras and 50 lenses, given to him by Canon after he connected with them and shared his vision for Fund a Photographer. Think Tank Photo, ProGrade Digital and Adobe also stepped up to donated bags, memory cards and Lightroom memberships, respectively. In showing off the goods, Polin broke down how many cameras and lenses Canon sent his way:

80D (10x) 70D (10x) Rebel SL2 (15x) T6i (15x) EF 18–135mm F3.5–5.6 IS (15x) EF 70–200 F2.8 IS II (5x) EF 24–105 F4 (6x) EF 16–35mm F2.8L II USM (amount unknown) 70–300 F4.5–5.6L IS USM (amount unknown)
