Welcome to the forums

Have you tried holding Volume Up/Down then pressing the Power button?

And why are you trying to get into recovery?

Thanks for joining

I think to get into recovery on the Galaxy S3, you have to hold volume up + power + home. If it give you odin(download) mode, then it's volume down instead of volume up.
It might be possible that you don't have recovery on your device if it you're doing the right command and it loops. I would go into odin mode and flash a recovery if that's the case.
