Using Internet picture for church use?

I get to do the Ward Directory again this year. Last year for the cover picture I just use the picture of Moroni I had (and I use for my profile picture on here). I'm doing a little different ward directory this year, but I wouldn't mind finding some picture for the cover.
Obviously I'm not trying to make money on anything. Its for the 120 or so we plan to print up. I was thinking of one of the pictures by Simon Dewey.
I have read a little about the Fair Use Copyright terms. It seems like it should be fine.
The years that I did our printed ward photo directory, I used photos of things in our area, not-church-related. I live in a suburb of Cleveland, so one year, I packed up my tripod and camera, and took pictures of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The architecture is striking, especially in black and white. I ended up not using any of the photos I took that day, but instead used one I took of another nearby landmark at a state park.

There are lots of pictures from artists of old for example:

In my opinion, I'd be getting permission from Simon Dewey. Even the picture that lds.net uses on their banner for the forums, we got permission from Mark Mabry to use it.
I googled his name and can't find that he actually has his own website. I would be more then happy to send him an e-mail. Not sure how to get a hold of him?
