The photon beam at SPring-8 is produced by backward-Compton scattering of laser photons from 8 GeV electrons. The maximum energy of the photon beam is 2.4 GeV which is above the production threshold. We report the status of the new facility and the prospect of hadron physics study with this high quality beam. Results from the first physics run on the subjects of φ photo-production and a S=+1 baryon are presented.
