Interview with Jordan Pannowitz (@girlinthebandana)


Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

I love music and photography so thought why not combine the two and that’s how Girl in the Bandana was born!

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

Learning that Delta Goodrem has one of my photos framed in her house was a pretty cool moment!

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

It’s not about just having a photography hobby it’s about loving it completely and always wanting to be better. As they say, you’ll never work a day in your life if you love what you do! 

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

My family has been so supportive of my career. Having a Medical Science Degree already everyone just assumed I would only stay on that particular career path but my mind just kept going back to photography over and over again. I finally then found a way to make a living out of it and leave my full-time career in Oncology to pursue my photography career. When I told my family I thought they may have their doubts but they were immediately supportive and always asking how they can help me achieve my career goals. 

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

I love volunteering with charities and using my photography to capture these moments so the charities can gain even more publicity and raise as much money as possible to help those in need. 

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

My life lesson quote is actually a family saying. “illundy” it just means to keep going forward and learning to always adapt to changes in life to the best of your abilities. Don’t get too caught up in the bad stuff and always celebrate the good stuff. My great grandfather actually made up the word when he was younger and it has just stuck with our family ever since.
