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.

Daling voertuigdiefstal vlakt af

Daling voertuigdiefstal vlakt af

De eerste 6 maanden van 2019 is het aantal gestolen personenauto’s slechts licht gedaald ten opzichte van 2018. Het eerste halfjaar werden er 3606 gestolen tegen 3642 in dezelfde periode van 2018. Ook het aantal diefstallen van andere voertuigen daalt licht. Alleen brom- en snorfietsen worden fors meer gestolen (+12,8%). 

Jonge voertuigen 0-3 jaar populair

Opvallend is dat de diefstal van jonge voertuigen toeneemt met 12%. Diefstal van 2 jaar oude voertuigen stijgt het meest, met 38,7%. De Audi A1 en de Fiat 500 dragen met name bij aan deze stijging. De VW Golf en de Polo, worden ondanks forse daling, nog steeds het meest gestolen. De diefstal van hybride voertuigen blijft nagenoeg gelijk waarbij Toyota en Lexus het meest populair zijn. De Mercedes Vito en Sprinter en de VW Transporter zijn bij elkaar goed voor 58 % van de gestolen lichte bedrijfswagens. Bijna 50% van de motorfietsen wordt gestolen in Amsterdam en Den Haag. 

Het totale aantal voertuigen dat op de eerste dag wordt teruggevonden, is wederom licht gestegen van 34,4% naar 36,6 %. Het versnelde aangifteproces bewijst daarmee blijvend zijn toegevoegde waarde. Opvallend is dat voertuigen die een grote diefstalstijging laten zien een laag terugvindpercentage hebben: bij de Audi A1 is dit 16% en bij de Fiat 500 maar 15%.

Van gestolen Harley-Davidsons wordt slechts 5,3 % teruggevonden. 

“De diefstal toename van jonge voertuigen toont de georganiseerdheid van de autodieven aan en dus blijft aandacht voor preventie en intensieve samenwerking bij de opsporing essentieel.” zegt Hendrik Steller, Manager van Landelijk Informatiecentrum Voertuigcriminaliteit.
