So, there is a responsive human at the other end, but, as I read it, you have to report that your own photos have been copied.
Same case when reporting folks on Facebook for doing the same thing. If I recall, Demand Media has been able to get a few photos and pages taken down from Facebook by reporting the copyright violations as some of the photos on some pages still had A.net copyrights visible.
It's pretty much SOP on social media sites that copyright and IP infringements can only be reported by the person whose works are being infringed. You would think that providing a link to the photos here in a report would be a way to get it addressed by sites, but it's not.

Good news! You don't have to worry about instagram taking his pics down, he said he is going to stop posting pictures from now on. Wooooo!
Although those pictures are still up there for people to see, it's better than nothing.
More than likely, this person will start up a new account and keep stealing photos from here and other sites. This has happened on multiple occasions on Facebook after members here barraged those pages with the links to the photos that had been stolen from here. One guy tried to say that the photographers did not own their photos and that the airlines whose planes were photographed did and started a page comparing aviation photographers to the Taliban.
Going through some older threads on this topic, one page that was previously reported on last year is still stealing photos from the site:
