This company recently sent me an email trying to recruit me as one of their "Scouts". As I looked through the website, I see that they are also looking for photographers to register throughout the country to be used by their talent.

Scout, the premier source of new talent is developing a database of Photographers nationwide for access by our talent. Over 2000 potential models and actors visit our site every day. If you would like to post your portfolio on the Scout website free for 30 days click below to register.

Scout Website

It appears to be a new company. I don't know anything more about it but it sounded interesting. How often do YOU have models calling you to take photos of them??

free for 30 days should be your first clue that somethings not right. They want you to sign up for space or something and then they gonna screw you. Hope you like it dry.

Sounds like another one of these "new business model" schemes like the low ball stock sites. I'd suggest that you make a lot of inquiries about how much and when are you going to get paid for photographing their talent. If they are paying market rate why are they recruiting that way? Potential models never have any trouble finding someone to take their pictures if they are willing to pay market rate. And I'd also look into the terms they are offering to the daily 2000 models & actors.
