The cross section for (gamma,N) reaction is important for investigation of nuclear structure, especially in low-energy giant dipole resonance (GDR). The total cross sections of C-12(gamma, n)C-11 and C-12(gamma,p)B-11 reactions, calculated using TALYS 1.2 nuclear code, are 15.5 to 40 MeV and 15 to 110 MeV, respectively. In the calculations, the default pre-equilibrium models and Brink-Axel Lorentzian model in all of the gamma strength functions have been used. The effects of the gamma strength function on the cross section exchange data has determined the most compatible model type. The results are compared with the experimental data from the EXFOR database and the evaluated nuclear data from TENDL-2012. Our calculated results are in good agreement with the previously reported experimental results.
