The common misconception is that the difference between a shallow well and a deep well is the depth to which you dig to hit water. While this may be true in some cases, this isn't the basis of classification. A shallow well is one where the primary source of water is an unconfined aquifer and a deep well is one which is fueled by a confined aquifer.
