Key to understanding Ampère’s right-hand grip rule in terms of zero-point photons is to imagine two ions moving through space. By comparing the effect of a positive ion moving from right to left, to the effect of a negative ion moving from left to right, we see that the two cases create identical magnetic fields.

A positive ion can be viewed as a hook covered ball. When it moves through space, it latches on to the hoop covered orbs of zero-point photons. A positive ion moving from right to left sets the negative orbs of the zero-point photons spinning counter-clockwise as viewed from the magnetic north.

The positive orbs spin clockwise.

Zero-point photons moving away from the photon after a bounce, are all polarized and spinning. A circular magnetic field radiates out from the moving ion.

The photons spin the same way in both cases. The magnetic field developed around the two ions are identical.

The two orb model of the photon behaves precisely the way it has to in order to model real world magnetism around charges in motion.
