The Spy complimenting the photographer

The Photo Badge is a community-created cosmetic item for all classes. It is two instant film photographs (most commonly associated with Polaroid brand cameras) held together in place with a safety pin, with the top photograph showing the Team Fortress 2 label. The Decal Tool can be used to change the image appearing on the badge.

The Photo Badge was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
