I have taken many photos of Hillary Clinton since 2006 when I did a cover for a local magazine. Several of Bill too. Having met them both several times over the years, I've always been a supporter. Anyway, many have been licensed since then.
However, all is not rosy. One that I really like of the two of them (which was licensed for positive and/or neutral stories in the past) ended up in a book where I netted $200 for an 1/8th page limited run (one of my better licenses for an editorial photo that was nearly a decade old by then), but not thrilled to see the photo used in a book about some conspiracy theory.
Additionally, several of my 2015-2016 images were licensed during the campaign, some in articles favorable to her, which is what I envisioned when I took them, but many others, to my dismay, were used by some conservative and even some of those awful alt-news sites in stories supporting that other guy.
Once your photos are available to be licensed, it's really out of your hands. That is always the risk you take with editorial photos.
The sad part is, some of the respectable publications didn't credit them using my name, but many of the less savory sites did (those are the times I wish they'd just use the agency's name). At least I was paid for the many uses and none of them turned into memes.
