I have a PhD in Physics so please explain to me how a field can be a photon. In particular explain,

When you accelerate electric charge ....This particular field we label as "electromagnetic field" or "electromagnetic radiation" or "photon".

In addition the following comment seems to contradict the above statement

Magnetic field is not a part of a photon,

I think that fields are fields and particles are particles and one can become the other. But I do not understand your viewpoint. You seem to be saying that fields are particles. Is that so?
