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.

De Biker Parade :

De Biker Parade : dé afspraak op het Salon voor de motor- en scooterliefhebbers! 


De “Biker Parade”, hét niet te missen Salonevenement voor motor- en scooterliefhebbers, vindt dit jaar plaats op zaterdag 18 januari 2014. Er wordt om 12u00 verzameld op de parking van het museum Autoworld in het Jubelpark te Brussel voor een gezamenlijk rit naar de Heizelpaleizen (ca. 12 km). Met gonzende motoren en onder politie-escorte zullen alle deelnemers in een indrukwekkende stoet naar het Salon rijden!

Bij aankomst, omstreeks 15u00, is er een parking voorzien en alle deelnemers ontvangen een toegangskaart voor het Salon. Jaarlijks nemen zo’n 700 motorrijders deel aan de Biker Parade. Om een veilige tocht te garanderen werken we samen met de politie en officiële wegkapiteins.



Van 14 tot 26 januari 2014 wordt in Brussels Expo de 92ste “European Motor Show Brussels” georganiseerd. Zowat alle auto- en motormerken die op de Belgische markt aanwezig zijn, zullen weer van de partij zijn en hun nieuwste producten uitstallen.

Het wordt, anders gezegd, opnieuw dé afspraak van het jaar voor elke journalist en liefhebber van auto’s, bromfietsen, scooters en motoren.
