I have been using photoshop to open multiple images as layers. I work on each layer individually, then combine them at the end. I do this specifically for light painting at night. 
mid it possible to do this in Affinity photo?

You could try

File - New Stack

Add images

Untick Automatically Aliign Images (although you may want to play with that setting)

Untick Live Alignment

In the layers panel ungroup the live stack group

Just got to this topic accidentally through the search. 

I would strongly suggest to untick Automatically Align Images as @harrym recommends above. I'm shooting from a tripod and all my images are aligned. But sometimes Affinity Photos decides to move some of them for a few pixels for some reason. So I never use Automatically Align Images and Live Alignment. It might be reasonable only when you should hand held.

Can you provide a screen recording or list of steps?
There are 2 check boxes, one for alignment, and a second for live alignment. The first needs to be deactivated.
