I believe the units for a photon is in terms of joules (J).

I think it's easiest to think of photons as little bundles of energy so therefore you would use joules to measure how much energy a photon has.

Also, I think that the units for a photon are in joules (J).

A photon is light, which has a particular wavelength, frequency, energy, and other values (I believe).

So I think if you are talking about the energy of a photon it would be in Joules, wavelength would be in meters, frequency would be in Hz (s^-1), etc.
