Photographing food on location is definitely one of the most challenging things I do for work. Being on location means that you don’t control the environment like you would in a studio set up. I work with the chef and real food. I need to work fast as food doesn’t sit well for too long (especially ice cream!). There are many other variables that come into play: light (I shoot food with window light and reflectors only), occasional spectators (yes, in most cases the restaurants are open for business when I shoot), etc. I enjoy the challenge and I make the best of any given situation. You just need to be prepared for the unexpected and go with the flow!
