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.

Paasshow DCA Motorcycles in Helmond: Alles Paas en Vree

Ondanks eerder verbod paasshow DCA Motorcycles in Helmond: Alles paas en vree
 De paasshow van motorzaak DCA Motorcycles in Helmond is tweede paasdag goed verlopen. 
De politie en de gemeente Helmond waren bang dat er rivaliserende motorbendes naar de paasshow zouden komen. De gemeente had daarom op advies van de politie de vergunning ingetrokken. DCA spande een kort geding aan en won.  

Een uitje voor het hele gezin

De eigenaar van de motorzaak, Dennis van de Velden, had om die reden een kort geding aangespannen. Donderdag 17 april bepaalde de rechter in Den Bosch dat het evenement wel door mocht gaan. 

"We zijn blij dat het door is gegaan", vertelt Van de Velden. "Er zijn hier alleen motorliefhebbers en niemand die van kwade wil is. Mijn eigen kind van negen maanden loopt hier ook rond. Dat zegt genoeg denk ik." 

Volgens de rechter heeft burgemeester Elly Blanksma van Helmond de ernstige vrees dat motorclubs naar de open dag zouden komen onvoldoende onderbouwd. De burgemeester baseerde zich alleen op een negatief advies van de politie en dat kan niet zonder andere argumenten, vindt de rechter.
