Ernst Ferdinand Oehme was trained for teachership and started painting as an auto-didact. Carl Wagner helped him to a place at the Dresden Academy of Arts in 1919 where J.C.C. Dahl was his teacher. He was influenced by Dahl's friend Caspar David Friedrich. With financial support from Crown Prince Friedrich August of Saxony he continued his studies in Italy. There Ludwig Richter, Carl Gottlieb Peschel and Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld became his friends. In 1825 he returned to Germany, travelling through the Alps.

Back in Dresden he received commissions from the Crown Prince and from Johann Gottlob von Quandt. In the 1830s he started painting in a more realistic style. In 1846 he was appointed court painter. His son Ernst Erwin Oehme (1831-1907) was a painter as well.
