portfolio submission -- how many photos? - Photography

What is a standard / typical number of photos to submit to a gallery for a portfolio when approaching a gallery with a query letter and some photos? 12? I want to keep the cost down, but also want to send enough to show a gallery what I am capable of, what I have. The query letter could also have my website that shows all my photos....

    What is a standard / typical number of photos to submit to a gallery for a
    portfolio when approaching a gallery with a query letter and some photos?
    12? I want to keep the cost down, but also want to send enough to show a
    gallery what I am capable of, what I have. The query letter could also have
    my website that shows all my photos.

    I really don't think there is a standard. The answer is "however many it
    takes to show what you can do".

    A typical portfolio is about 20 images.

    Providing a link to a website with "all" your photos is a good way to turn
    off whoever is asked to review the images.
