Abstract: We present BVRCIC broad-band CCD photometry of the Type Ia supernova SN 2004S, which appeared in the galaxy MCG-05-16-021, obtained during 2004 February 12 to March 22. We present multiband and bolometric light curves constructed using our data as well as other available data. The time of the B-band maximum and the peak magnitudes in different bands are obtained using fits of light-curve and colour templates. We clearly see a strong shoulder in the RC band and a second maximum in the IC band. SN 2004S closely resembles SN 1992al after maximum. From the peak bolometric luminosity, we estimate the ejected mass of 56 Ni to be 0.41 Msolar.
