Alexa Rogals has been hired as the new staff photographer for Wednesday Journal and its three companion neighborhood publications. Rogals is a Chicago-area native and currently lives in Oak Park.

A graduate of Southern Illinois University, Rogals has previously freelanced for the Journal and other area publications. She was also a staff photographer for the daily in Farmington, New Mexico.

Her hiring was announced by Claire Innes, editorial design manager, and Bob Uphues, senior editor. Innes said the strong and varied portfolio presented by Rogals was persuasive, but more compelling was her energy and enthusiasm for community journalism.

Rogals succeeds William Camargo, who left the Journal to pursue art and photography interests in his native California.

In addition to Wednesday Journal of Oak Park & River Forest, the independently owned Oak Park-based company also publishes the Forest Park Review, Austin Weekly News and Riverside-Brookfield Landmark.
