Step aside humans, Rambo the octopus is taking the photos
Monday, April 13, 2015, 12:10 PM - Sony hires the world's first octographer. Yes, you read that correctly.
An octopus in New Zealand is setting the bar high for competition in photography. Rambo is the first trained octopus to snap photos.
Sony has partnered with The Sea Life Aquarium to train the octopus. Aquarium visitors have had the fortunate opportunity to say cheese for the eight armed photographer.
The photos are taken by a Sony TX30 compact camera that is attached to the outside of Rambo's tank. Visitors stand in front of a special backdrop and the octopus has been trained to click the red shutter button.
The octographer charges $2 for a photo, with proceeds going to charity.
