Anything I have dealt with, if we offered to kick over 20 or 25 copies of th publication, the fee would be waved. Without the SLHS photos we could proceed on the book so it was cancelled. The publisher told me several explitives for the fee per photo.
It's true that some archives will accept copies instead of a fee, but major ones DO tend to have a fee, and it's rarely waived. However, they usually offer a reduced fee for non-profit publication (Signature Press is not intentionally a non-profit), and many also will negotiate a "volume discount," lower cost per photo as the total number of photos used gets larger.
