Default Published photos

Hi TE - I was recently contacted by an academic book publisher who saw a photo of mine on another site and wants permission to use it as the back cover of a book to be published in 2014. As they are a non-profit company, they're asking to use it without any payment, but with (obviously) a photo credit. The book will have a very small initial run of 1,500 copies.

Has anyone else had this experience? Is it standard for a small non-profit academic publisher to make that request? I assume they went for a photo by an amateur for that very reason and that if I ask for payment they'll go find another photo, but I want to make sure I'm not being taken advantage of. I'd be pretty happy just to have the shot published, but obviously I'd be happier still if the deal included some money.

Thanks!
Andrew
