Revit 2013

I have a problem with rendering in Revit which I can't seem to be able to solve. Basically I'm trying to render a very small interior with lots of mirrors in it. In order to get a good enough perspective camera view of it I have to hide a couple of the bounding walls - which unfortunately face some of the mirrors. What happens is that I get pitch black in the mirrors rather than a reflection of the walls (obviously since I hid them from that view.) So I tried to apply full transparency to them but in this case, when rendering the walls are not hidden at all so I get to see nothing of my interior.

My question is: Is there anyway to hide an element to the camera, and yet have it's effects remain when revit does it's render calculations (so it would show up in mirror reflections etc.) Thanks a lot for your feedback! All the best.

If you hide something it is not going to render.    I don't think you are going to be able to get the affect that you are looking for

Can you place some dummy walls in with a gap just large enough for your camera to see through? Or, can you place another wall back behind your camera so your mirrors have something to reflect?

@TKennedy yeah that's what I did at the end. I was hoping for a two sided material solution, 1 side transparent, the other side the actual material of the interior, so i can see through the material and yet it also shows in reflections and ray calculations. V-ray has the option. Thanks for your help anyway.
