Kia introduced the Photo Safari Sedona at the 2015 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas.

The exterior of the Photo Safari Sedona is fitted with a prominent honeycomb grill, a large bumper and KC HiLites Pro-sports Gravity LED headlights. The vehicle also has a custom tubular steel roof rack for DSLR cameras, a WASPcam action sports camera system, booms and jigs. Furthermore, the vehicle is equipped with a number of auxiliary lights.

The rear of the Photo Safari Sedona comes with a pick-up bed that has multiple compartments for storage, outlet ports and a hidden compartment for low angle shots. It sits on 17-inch 'Method Rally' wheels wrapped in Nitto Dura Grappler tires.

Inside, the standard eight-passenger Sedona is converted into a two-passenger vehicle that has a professional editing studio. The Korean automaker says the Photo Safari Sedona is integrated with a military-grade battery that can keep the on-board studio running for hours without starting the engine. In addition, the vehicle comes with a 30-inch retractable rear window and RW radio headsets.

Under the hood, the Photo Safari Sedona is fitted with the standard 3.3-liter GDI 'Lambda' V6 engine that delivers 280 PS and 336 Nm of torque. It is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
