This past summer’s annual Empire Challenge continued for the 5th year to enlist Jeffrey Holmes Photography as the lead event photographer for Boomer Esiason’s annual dual between the High School All-Stars of New York City versus Long Island students. The event starts off with an All-U-Can-Eat Tailgate Party sponsored by Outback Steakhouse for a fabulous buffet! This family-oriented event includes an expo and fun activities prior to the game, a raffle and, of course, the evening highlight is the Empire Challenge football game pitting the best of New York City and Long Island.
While not the everyday sports photographer, I do have the experience of photographing a wide variety of events. A very versatile photographer in New York City. I most enjoy capturing the fun on the food swollen faces of the children. Their thrill on the slides.
The annual United Healthcare Empire Challenge highlights the brightest football talent from New York City and Long Island in support of the Boomer Esiason Foundation and youth football in the New York metro area. It’s held at James M. Shuart Stadium at Hofstra University.
