One did covers for Analog occasionally and he was asking about $1200, but I could understand given the level of his craft and didn't begrudge him for his price. Someday I would like to be able to use him though, but not until my sales grow a bit more.
And don't forget to add that you MUST add the copyright information of your photos or artwork to your copyright page. And it's also nice to contact the artist when you use a particularly nice photo (one that they would be able to recognize in the final version) and thank them for their work.
