Title: Photoproduction cross section at HERA energies

Abstract

The authors present first results on photoproduction cross section measurements with the H1 detector at HERA. The data were extracted from low q{sup 2} collisions of 26.7 GeV electrons with 820 GeV protons. The {gamma}p total cross section has been measured by two independent methods in the {gamma}p center of mass energy range from 90 to 290 GeV. For an average center of mass energy of 195 GeV a value of {sigma}{sub tot}({gamma}p) = 159 {+-} 7 (stat.) {+-} 20 (syst.){mu}b was obtained.
