We report on optical monitoring observations of the outburst of the black hole candidate X-ray binary Swift J174510.8-262411 (Sw J1725-26; e.g. GCN #13744; ATel #4383; #4393; #4394; #4450) with the Faulkes Telescope South (FTS; located at Siding Spring, Australia) in SDSS i'-band, Bessel R and Bessel V filters. The first FTS images were acquired just 19 minutes after the original Swift BAT trigger.
