I own a small part-time photography business in my home, but due to lack of business/finances, I have been seeking a full-time job in the career area that I use to do. On my resume, I'm showing the name of my business as my current employment but am not showing that I own the business; only showing my position as a photographer and office. Was wondering if I should change that and put: Owner-Photographer

Yes, I would put it down as Owner - Photographer, better yet, put down the name of the company you used and then put "owner". When you interview they will ask you questions about the company and may wonder why you didn't list it as such. Good luck.

To bridge a possible gap in employment, put it on. However, I don't think it will help you in your job search as it has nothing to do with your experience in logistics and supply chain.

Well, the business is still going (somewhat) and I now have my position in it as "Owner-Operator".
A very tiny bit of history now: We bought this very nice $800 digital camera while living in Colorado. I took some photos of chickens/ducks (in cages) at the State Fair and framed them. In taking the photos the way I did, there is no cage seen in front of these animals. The realitor that we bought our house from in Colorado, seen these pictures and said they were "very cool" and I should try to sell some. So, along with the chickens and ducks, I have also taken numerous other photos of wildlife, mountains and other scenery. Though I was taking these photos, I continued to work full time in a Logistic Department for a healthcare company. When we moved to North Carolina in late 2007, wife and I decided to try out this in-home photography business.......BUT, I was still searching for a new job in Purchasing/Inventory (Logistics). Part of what I do for this business is "purchasing" because I buy all the photography supplies. I also keep a small inventory of photos that I take (on a USB Saver).
So, even though the "photography business" really isn't going very good, I keep it as my current employment! However, I am about to try selling some of my photos on a "photo-selling" website. Wife/I discussed it and we don't want to do weddings/birthdays/anniversaries. Can be to, to much of a pain working with the public today like that.
