“Photography is more than a medium of factual communication of ideas. It is a creation of art.” -Ansel Adams

I have been a photographer for over 15 years, and I have been freelancing in the Greater Boston area since 2003. During this time I have built a network of valuable clients. My background is in fine art photography, which finds it's way into my commercial work.

I enjoy interior and architectural photography, as it is the culmination of lighting, structural and aesthetic design in one image. I create a photograph that forms a spatial experience and has visual strength. I like to explore details within a frame. The transformation of a space into an image that illustrates its purpose through photography- this is what keeps me inspired to provide my clients with the best visual rendition of their work. Art, science, design and technique come together on one platform in my photography, whilst maintaining authenticity in my creative process. My clients vary from construction companies to interior designers.


I also have a passion for alternative photography. I make fine art prints using the Cyanotype process. My exploration of the process led me to create Cyanotype lampshades. There are other home decor projects in the works which will be released soon. My desire to photograph interiors has contributed to creating these products, which give any space a lot of personality.


Many elements of photography come together in my work, which keeps me busy and creative. When I am not building lamps or on assignment, I am spending time with my friends, or my husband and two boys. I can also be very easily talked into going for a hike or watching a movie.

Sri Thumati


"Sri has a wonderful eye for detail and an instinctive approach for finding her subject's most unique and photogenic features. She is a talented, collaborative professional, and a delight to work with – her thoughtful and creative ideas are always in the service of the clients’ vision. Whether documenting our completed construction projects or taking portraits of the team for our website profiles, Sri is the only photographer we think of to call to highlight the work we do. We highly recommend Thumatipics!"

"Working with Sri has been a great combination of professionalism and creativity. What I want in the photographs of my newly finished residential properties isn’t simple.  Sri’s understanding of the “story” of the house is key.  She captures the flow of space and feel of the home by guiding the viewer’s eye.  She listens and learns about my particular needs and quirks, even when it’s mundane archival work.  Sri keeps at it through shooting and editing until she has the photos you want, and with quick turnaround time. Working with Sri over many projects has enhanced our communication, resulting in a more efficient process and even better photos."

"The photos that Sri took of children's rooms for my website really highlight the whimsy that I'm trying to convey in my interior design and custom decor work. She has an astute eye for color and composition that make for beautifully framed shots. She knows how to use natural light in a way that makes the colors pop- just what I need to emphasize in my decor. I would highly recommend working with Sri. She's so lovely and I had so much fun collaborating with her! She also took an amazing head shot of me that I foresee using in all my promotional work in the near future!"

"It may seem strange to hear that a lamp has totally remade a room, but for me this is true. Now, when I enter my room, a gentle light warms the space. But, it's more than the light warming the space. It's the art the light facilitates. The light and the dramatic blue hue of the shade provide a perfect surface for jellyfish to cavort across. Sri's work will deepen your love for the space around you."
