Gollings describes his style, "My purpose is to identify the quintessential elements and intrinsic dignity of architectural works and to convey these often nebulous attributes through the visual power of form. I try to encapsulate this in a single image."

Gollings' photographs are widely reproduced and continue to play a significant role in shaping public perceptions of Australian architecture.
