His works can be found in various corporate and private collections internationally.

It is sometimes argued that colour prints, representing what can be perceived by the eye, are less impactful than the abstraction of black and white photography. Eric Goh examines and discusses the amalgamation of key elements in colour photography and the manipulation of colour interplay to create and add poignancy to the works.

Eric Goh has been ranked among the top 25 overseas photographers by the Photographic Society of America. He is regularly invited to lecture on photography and to judge at national and international competitions. He currently also serves as a Resource Panelist (Photography) for the National Arts Council.
