If they said they don't pay for photographs, you could have said, "Well, I don't give my photographs away for free."
I had one of those once, the person I was talking to seemed genuinely surprised that I wanted money in exchange for him using my photo in for-profit advertisement...however, we came to an agreement that instead of money, I would be included in a particular tour which was worth about as much as I was asking, so I was happy - that is, until he went on vacation and missed the publication date for me.
Come to think of it, I think it's time to email that guy back and ask if he's interested in anything...
