About The Name

It is nice to have have your art identified with your name and in this age of the internet, to have your name as your website address is very special. Unfortunately, there are other Robert Hansens, also photographers, that have bought up all the possible domain variations of the name. Fortuitously, while doing some genealogy research on the family tree I came across the meaning of my first name. It gave me the perfect domain name solution.

Robert is from the Old Germanic name Hrodebert meaning "bright fame", derived from the Old Germanic elements hrod "fame" and beraht "bright". The Normans introduced this name to Britain, where it replaced the Old English cognate Hreodbeorht. It has been a very common English name since that time.

Thus was born from the Old Germanic meanings and my passion for photography...
