Quoted by Scott Robert:

On location photography is a completely different challenge and requires a whole new skill set. Everything is unpredictable and you have to work in less than perfect conditions. It is VERY difficult. To shoot at the next level the photographer has to be skilled on composition and learn how to pose and light in limited and restrictive conditions, having to maximize the most basic lighting tools to be mobile and flexible.

This is what I love, the extreme challenge to pull off  an amazing  shot with rudimentary lighting in the most unpredictable situations-wind, rain darkness, extreme bright light, working in heat, avoiding tourists, limited angles, composition and posing challenges.
