Val Brinkerhoff graduated from Brigham Young University in 1980 with a bachelor's degree in art and design.

Brinkerhoff worked as a commercial photographer for some 25 years before joining the Visual Arts Faculty at BYU, where he taught Photography in the Department of Design. Over the years Professor Brinkerhoff has won various awards for his photography and has published several books.

In 2012 some of Brinkerhoff's works were on display at the "Treasured Truths" exhibit at BYU. His collection, photographs of the architectural beauties of different religious buildings, was the result of a six-year journey to 45 different countries and many hours of study to understand the common religious symbolism of Islam and Christianity. The exhibit was later displayed at the Springville Museum of Art's Sacred Settings exhibit.
