    A model agency said they have several professional scouts. How do the
    scouts make money?

    They get a percentage of the agencies fee for a model right? So lets
    say an scout has a great model and introduced them to the agency and
    the agency uses the model for a job. Probably the first job they agency
    will use the model is for a peanuts salary, they give the scout
    practically nothing and thereafter, well, they have the models contact
    details and can cut out the middle man, right?

    So how could anybody make a living as a model scout? What do they do?
