Is a self-drive tour of Wadi Rum possible?

We are visiting Jordan in March and are planning to spend good 3 to 4 days in Wadi Rum. We are mainly interested in photography (sunrise/sunset/night). After going through lot of posts, blogs, and guide books, it seems like almost everyone takes guided tours of Wadi Rum.

Is it possible to do a self-tour if we rent a 4x4? Has anyone done it before? Main purpose of wanting to do a self-tour is to have flexibility. A good example of that would be - if there is a tour group at a location we are waiting to photograph, we can wait until they depart or come back at a later time. Also, if needed we can extend our trip easily if we feel we need more time.

Is it safe/practical to do a self-tour? Also wondering about issues such as availability of help if car breaks down and emergency services etc. On the other hand, guides would probably know all the best photography locations.

We will consider a private tour if self-driving is ruled out. But we will prefer self-drive if its recommended.

Thanks for your time.
