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.

Dutch Motorcycle Festival op Vliegveld Twenthe

Nieuw: Dutch Motorcycle Festival op Vliegveld Twenthe

Nederland is een splinternieuw festival rijker. Motorliefhebbers reizen 
zaterdag 26 augustus af naar het festivalterrein op Vliegveld Twenthe om elkaar 
te ontmoeten op het eerste Dutch Motorcycle Festival. 
Een festival voor de echte motorrijders die weten wat liefde voor de motor betekent. 

De organisatie is in handen van de makers van MOTORbeurs Utrecht, de grootste motorbeurs van Nederland. “Het festival draait om liefde voor de motor, waar oude vrienden elkaar ontmoeten en nieuwe vrienden worden gemaakt”, aldus organisator Malou Peters van Jaarbeurs. “Het wordt vooral een heel gezellig festival met eindeloos motoren kijken, gave shows, testritten en rijlessen, goede muziek en lekker eten. Zowel voor de doorgewinterde motorrijders, de beginnende rijders en zelfs mensen die nog niet in het bezit zijn van een motorrijbewijs, maar ‘m stiekem wél zouden willen hebben. En natuurlijk denken we ook aan de jongste motormuizen die er alleen nog maar over kunnen dromen.“
Op dit moment wordt hard gewerkt aan de programmering onder het motto van ‘Niets moet, alles mag’. De bezoekers krijgen een hoge mate van inspraak in het programma. Via social media kunnen zij laten weten wat zij op het Dutch Motorcycle Festival willen zien, horen, beleven en ervaren. Malou Peters: “De 1,2 kilometer lange start- en landingsbaan van het voormalige militaire vliegveld biedt een geweldig decor om er een prachtig festival van te maken.”
