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.

 Around 360,000 horsepower fans visited the ESSEN MOTOR SHOW 2013 from November 30 to December 8. That was the best result for five years and resulted in a growth rate of six percent in comparison with 2012. At Germany's most popular annual automobile fair, the visitors found the ideal mixture of show, information and innovations. While the fair was principally a unique experience for 36 percent, another third used Europe's leading fair for sporty vehicles for information. Almost just as many came in order to see innovations and premieres.

"The ESSEN MOTOR SHOW is a cult car fair with a bright future. The exhibitors and the public are once more confirming that it was precisely the right decision to focus on sporty automobiles again. That is being substantiated by the growing numbers of visitors in recent years and by the peak value for the time being in 2013," according to Egon Galinnis, Managing Director of Messe Essen.
