Madness Photography started as an official, serious company in 1998.
But the history of Madness Photography started long before. Onno “Berserk” Wieringa, founder and owner of Madness Photography, has been a self-taught photographer since he was a little kid and started to take pictures of something he loved since the day he was born: motorcycles!

His motorcycles
After he finished high school, he started working for various Harley-Davidson shops, where he learned to work on bikes. At the age of 17, he already owned two Triumph’s and when he was eighteen he had four Triumphs and a Suzuki GT 750. After getting his drivers license, when he was eighteen, the Triumphs all had to go and were replaced by a bike that he had wanted since the day he was born; a Harley-Davidson. This bike is still in his life; it’s an FXE-F 1200 Super Glide Fat Bob, which has been rebuild and modified endlessly and ridden for many miles. Going everywhere on the bike, there was one thing he always had in his pocket; his camera!
At the age of 23 he started drag racing, and he and his team named “Midnight Madness”, raced the bike on all the major races and drag strips all over Europe. He has competed in many classes; starting with the Street bikes, than Ultimate Street Bike, Super Stock, Pro-Stock, and then finally in the fastest gas burning class; Top Gas! Also again taking thousands of photo’s of everything interesting, at every racetrack! Being a racer for more than 18 years gave him insight in the world of fast bikes, and he’s still involved in the world of drag racing as a helper/mechanic and of course photographer / reporter.

Photo's of the Harley-Davidson Club ’t Centrum Int. Rally

Events and H-D Rallies, what makes the difference between a good and a bad one? Well, besides the weather, it’s the people, the way an event is organized and of course the location plays a small role too.

The 44th H-DC ’tCentrum Int. Rally in Maarsseveen, The Netherlands, is one of those rallies you just have to go to. The location at the Lake is beautiful, the weather always, as in every year, is great, but the main thing is the nice people and the relaxt way the Rally is organized.

 Believe me, it’s a shitload of work, time and energy to get a Rally like this

The Dakota Doomsday Party Photo's are Online now!

Broken Wings, rusted Parts, corroded aluminum, loose Parts and a total state of destruction. The Dakota L-4 made in 1944 in Oklahoma, USA couldn’t have looked more sad than the state it was in, when we arrived for the Dakota DoomsDay Party on Sunday September the 15th. at the Valkenburg Naval Air Station near Katwijk in the Netherlands. It was a farewell party, attended by many WWII Veterans and Dakota lovers. Farewell Party, because the very next day the Dakota was completely dismantled.

Prior to the disassembly, Hans Wiesman and his company Avionart, organised the Dakota Doomsday Party on Sunday 15 Sept, a farewell meeting that was attended by WW II Jeeps, Trucks and Army Harley-Davidsons as a tribute to this Warbird Dakota, the Aluminum Soldier that will never fly again.
