In HTML add a class like "wrap" to the main div that excludes the footer. So the rest of the page is in this div, but not the footer. Like this in HTML:
Then mark the min-height in CSS for the class "wrap" with the calc() function. You would calculate 100 percent of the viewer height (vh) and subtract the pixels for the footer (somewhere around 75 px, but it will depend upon how big you need your picture to be). The code would look like this in CSS:
