In the framework of the direct photometric problem we obtained an analytical representation of the light variations of binary systems of stars one of which with spots on its surface. The photometric effect is due to the mutual eclipses and to the rotation of the spotted component. These expressions can be used for the solution of the inverse problem for spotted stars.
