In order to understand sources of ultra high energy cosmic rays, we search for ultra high energy photons with the Telescope Array experiment. The Telescope Array is a hybrid detector consisting of an array of scintillation detectors, which measure the lateral profile of air showers, and fluorescence detectors, which measure the longitudinal profile of air showers. This information is used to search for photon-like events. We will report on the analysis method, and the result of a photon search using five years of TA data.
