The effects of the shear and the bulk viscosities on the transverse momentum distribution of thermal photons have been studied. The effects of viscosity have been taken into account both in the phase space distributions of the particles taking part in the production process as well as in the space time evolution. We argue that the thermal photons can be used as an efficient tool to estimate the transport coefficients of quark gluon plasma.
