MADNESS PHOTOGRAPHY

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.

Florida Georgia Line Cruises into the Sturgis Buffalo Chip

Florida Georgia Line Cruises into the Sturgis Buffalo Chip®


Sturgis, SD (November, 2013) – The Sturgis Buffalo Chip added chart-topping country act, Florida Georgia Line, to the artist lineup of its 33rd annual motorcycle and music festival. The duo will bring their collection of hard-driving country hits to the 2014 festival including singles, “Cruise,” “Get Your Shine On,” “Round Here” and “Stay.” The contemporary country superstars will perform on Wednesday, Aug. 6 during the 2014 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, joining a lineup that currently includes previously announced headliners, Lynyrd Skynyrd. The Buffalo Chip festival will take place July 28-Aug. 9, 2013. 

Florida Georgia Line’s popularity has skyrocketed since releasing consecutive, multi-week No. 1 hits from their debut album, “Here’s to the Good Times.” The smash hit, “Cruise,” broke the record for longest No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart, sold over 6 million downloads in the US and is the second best-selling country single ever, according to SoundScan.



“These guys are selling out stadiums all over the nation right now,” says Rod Woodruff, president of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “Their work-hard-play-hard attitude provides fans a heavy dose of ‘Good Times,’ which is very relatable for those who come to the Chip to have fun and let loose.” 
     
The four-time American Music Awards nominee, Florida Georgia Line, is one of many artists Buffalo Chip campground guests can enjoy during the nine-day music festival. Concertgoers can expect to sing along with popular radio hits while taking in the authentic 2014 Sturgis Rally experience at the Buffalo Chip. The festival will continue to announce world-class entertainment as it books more artists who fit its motto of “Best Party Anywhere™.” 

The 33rd annual Motorcycle and Music Festival delivers nine days of non-stop entertainment July 28-Aug. 9, 2014. Camping passes are on sale now, and all concerts are free with camping.
